For the minimal price...add the 2nd AC!
Ask anyone who has had 2 ac's on their rig if they regret getting it...the answer will be a huge "NO"!
I'll never go back to a 1 ac camper again

I have a 31" TT. In the desert southwest temps exceed 100*F for 12-15 weeks at a time during the summer months. My rig came with one 15K unit, and I have added two more (very inexpensive) portable units. With 3 tons of A/C working on the hotter days 115*F+ I can maintain the inside of my rig at about 78*F. If I were you, I would go for the second unit, assuming you can run both at the same time. Last summer we endured some 120*F days, with lows at night in the 98*F range. We still stayed comfortable, although we did add a box fan to keep moving the inside air. I even had to add a box fan to the fridge outdoor vent intake to keep it cooling properly. Luckily I did not have to pay for the electricity we were using.
"Full Timer" with "Boon Docking" in the desert southwest being my drug of choice. Well, that and really cold beer.

if buying new and its an option and you expect to camp in heat its a no COULD work if conditions were optimal (parked in some shade, don't open door much , no more than 2 human heat btu units inside).....but why?... ours saw 104-110 this summer in full sun and the 2 15k units would cool to 72 and still cycle..!!...I could not imagine being comfortable in those conditions with only 1 unit....matter of fact I only have 30 amp sercive at my house and the one ac will only cool to about 76-77 inside with 95+ outside temps.....better? ...sure....comfy?...not for me..!
